Please join us for an elaborate evening of glamour and good times at Connexion Artist-run Centre in Fredericton (440 York St.) on Friday, February 14. Tickets are five dollars, with all proceeds supporting Connexion – Fredericton’s artist-run centre for contemporary art.
Doors open at 8 PM for this all-ages, wet/dry fundraising event.
The evening will include musical performances by Cesar Morales’ drumming group, the up-and-coming local band Tortue, the dynamic duo Joseph Bonnell + John Morgan, and local legend Kurtis Mcallister. The event will culminate in a totally sweet dance party.
#HART BASH will include a series of artist projects critically-themed around “selfies,” Facebook and other iterations of narcissistic internet culture. Projects include a photo-based installation project by Fredericton photographer Jeff Crawford, a “selfie booth” by artist Kelly Hill, a “stylist booth” by local designers Stephanie Tait + Sabrina Thibodeau (sponsored by Reneu Boutique + Value Village), a “kissing booth” by Marie Fox, and a secret project conceived by Michael McEwing.
Dress code is glamour, glitter and all things vogue.
Cash bar will be serving suitably intriguing mixed drinks – alcoholic and non – and the event is sponsored by Picaroons.
Look forward to dancing and fortune telling late into the night …
